Quote of the Week
“Kafka envisioned a possible world that human beings would construct in which the actions of man depend on nothing but himself and his spontaneity, and in which human society is governed by laws prescribed by man himself rather than by mysterious forces, whether they be interpreted as emanating from above or from below.”
-- Hannah Arendt, "Frank Kafka, Appreciated Anew"
